This novel The Hilliker curse has alot to do with his association and his obsession with women One clear assumption from reading his words is he loves to brood and a bit too much He s a one of a kind character recently I watched an interview of his on video here and here it was outrageous This gave me the need to start reading from this gifted writer the Black Dahlia is the only novel I have read of his to date and have many of his novels on the shelf who s spines need breakingSince his mother s murder in his youth he has been trying to understand women and sometimes in the most unconventional ways I wonder if when he was nine years old the incident with the 17 or 18 German immigrant babysitter had a dark effect on his character His marriage to Helen tamed his one nighters and obsession with women He writes at length of his happiness with her and i did hope for it to last as it seemed to really contribute to his successful flood of novels Due to what he calls the Hilliker Curse ot didn t and he meet Joan and divorced He had two divorces and finally settled with Erika who was married It seems she s the one a he closes the book attesting to this Thank god he s had a ruff ride and needs to uite brooding Ellroy seems a man of uniue character and presence and a gifted genius in writing I have not read enough of his novels to be uoted on stating of his genius but sense itHe writes with humour and gives you a snippet into an Ellrovian lifeThis video gives you a taster of the one and only EllroyAll hail James Ellroy a LegendHe talks of his Beethovian mood swings and general love of BeethovenWhen he talks of his teenager years he mentions this I taped pictures of Beethoven over my bed and pondered our genius He composed his greatest music for his Immortal Beloved Her identity remained as mysterious as The Other for me Beethoven understood my deep loneliness and sorrow His deafness inspired visionary thoughts unknown to mortal men My deafness was voluntary Beethoven dug that I often played the adagio of the Hammerklavier Sonata before I went peeping Beethoven approved than condemned the practiseMy dad died in 65 I got kicked out of high school and psych discharged from three months in the army I held down minimum wage jobs and flopped in dive hotels and parks I smoke weed and scored uppers from dubious physicians I shoplifted and full time fantasied I kept a bust of Beethoven stashed in a bush at Burns Park I did lightweight jolts in the LA County jail system I was too thin and was developing a chronic cough Booze and dope regulated my fantasy life The theme had only intensified I remained consumed by women It was pushing me toward insanity and death I masturbated myself bloody I brain screened faces for stern beauty and probity The dope drizzled put of my system I drank myself comatose and woke up in random shrubbery and jails I never uestioned the validity of my mission I never uestioned my sanity or the religious mess of my uest I did not subscribe to the notion of the American 1960s as the sine ua non of all behaviours in extremis I was tracing the arc of the Hilliker Curse I wanted One Woman or All Women to be her The horribly looming price of insanity or death in no way deterred meHe talks about his first bookMy new hero was a womanising cop He had predatory instincts and my seeker s rationale The sex fiend cop became a hardback trilogy The feminist poet was supplanted by a brainy call girl and the cop s resurrected ex wife The woman with a cello book stayed in print Ditto the my mom got whacked and I m in flight epicI wanted an unnamed woman It was the inextinguishable flame or my life I wanted to write a specific woman s story I knew her name Elizabeth Short The Black DahliaAmerican Tabloid was the private nightmare of public policy The infrastructure was power grab in place of love as redemption Women veered through the book in subordinate roles This was emblematic of the early 60s I wanted to write an all new kind of novel and incinerate my ties in LA The former was laudable the latter was not LA made me Jean Hilliker was killed there I met Helen Knode a block from where I was born The book was almost finished Helen kept saying you re working too hard Other than the video in the links above there are these also JAMES ELLROY INTERVIEW WITH MIRANDA SAWYER BBC 2 THE CULTURE SHOW 2009James Ellroy speaks

review ê The Hilliker Curse å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free James Ellroys mamma Jean Hilliker har alltid haft en oerhörd betydelse för hans liv Hon mördades 1958 när Ellroy bara var tio år men brottet blev aldrig uppklarat Vid tiden för mordet var James och hans mamma ovänner och han önskade livet ur henne Sed. Ellroy I love your books but I m getting a little tired of hearing about your masturbation fantasies sigh OK let s take it from the top Ladies and gentlemen once again the biography of James EllroyJames Ellroy was 10 in 1958 when his mother was raped and murdered The case was never solved His parents had been divorced and he went to live with his father a lazy two bit hustler in LA Young James was socially awkward had an overheated imagination and a child s belief that he may have caused his mother s death by wishing her dead shortly before she was actually killedWith unacknowledged feelings for his mother shoved into the back of his mind James intense obsessive personality and story telling nature along with a complete lack of parental guidance from his father led him to live inside his own head He was obsessed with women and concocted elaborate fantasies about anyone he d see He loved crime stories and created scenarios where he was the hero who would save a woman His father died He become a drunk and drug user sometimes homeless who peeped women and broke into houses to engage in petty theft and panty sniffingEventually a full blown mental meltdown and physical collapse scared Ellroy off booze and drugs He worked menial jobs at golf courses and started writing He got published He grew as a writer and wrote The Black Dahlia He admits that he shamelessly exploited his mother s death for book publicity That book became part of something larger his LA uartet of crime novels Also containing LA Confidential He started rewriting US history as an untold crime story in American Tabloid He married a woman named Helen Knode who encouraged him to finally acknowledge his issues with his motherEllroy hired a retired LA homicide detective and the two examined his mother s murder He tied that into his own history and wrote it up as My Dark Places claiming that he was finally owning up to his debt to his mother He and his wife moved to Kansas City just as the critical success of the film version of LA Confidential and the raves for American Tabloid and My Dark Places brought him to the peak of his commercial and artistic success to date Ellroy claimed he d finally put his past to bed he was moving on to bigger and better novels he loved his wife he loved his new home in KC and he d finally achieved the peace and stability he d always neededBullshitI was here in KC during that period right after the release of My Dark Places and got to meet him a couple of times at some events I even got my own little A session with him for about fifteen minutes once He gave every indication of being a guy who had survived a pretty ugly past and was ready to move on And apparently it was all lies Actually that s not right Ellroy wasn t lying exactly It s just that he s obsessive about needing a narrative He s a writer He needed a story to fit the very public figure he d become So he gave us one and sold himself on it tooWhat Ellroy reveals in The Hilliker Curse is that he s never gotten over his whole mad obsession with finding Her The woman he s been fantasizing about since his mother got killed He s been looking for her since he was a pimply faced teen running wild in LA fueled by booze drugs and crime fantasies It eventually made him a great writer It s also made for a pretty fucked up life It s led him to countless obsessions two divorces adultery and another full blown mental crack up in the early 2000sEllroy s self admitted problem is that he often prefers to sit in a dark room fantasizing about Her rather than dealing with real life with an actual woman He knows he s messed up He claims he s still on friendly terms with his last ex wife and another woman that he had an affair with and that they help keep him somewhat honest But now he says that he has finally found The One His long epic journey has at last led him the woman he s always been seekingIf I didn t know about Ellroy if I hadn t met the man and listened to his previous story first hand and bought it completely then I d probably believe him The key thing to remember is that he is an admitted opportunist and relentless self promoter When Black Dahlia released he claimed that it was his final tribute to his mother But when My Dark Places released Ellroy said that what he d said earlier was bullshit and that he d finally honestly examined his relationship to her and dealt with it there And here we are 14 years later and once again Ellroy is telling us that wasn t true either Here s the REAL story And he s so damn good that you can almost believe it Again I don t think he s lying I think he s narratingAs an Ellroy fan I enjoyed the book It s written in his trademark high octane ADD style His behind the scenes account of his career explains why The Cold Six Thousand was unsatisfying and how his breakdown and financial problems led to a decade of non fiction short stories and his involvement with bad movies He appears to be back on track with the release of Blood s A Rover last year and I d like to believe that this new woman will finally lead him to happiness and lots of new novels But I feel like Charlie Brown running full tilt at the football just before Lucy yanks it away I m not falling for it again I m a fan of James Ellroy I m not his friend I root for him to do well and want great books from him In exchange I ll buy his work and spread the gospel I d like for him to be happy but after reading two autobiographies by him I m doubting it s possible Maybe he s doomed to just sit in dark rooms and love his women via rich fantasies If he needs to justify and rewrite his history to live with himself that s fine We all do it to some extent I just wish he d use his talent in that area to write some new books instead of trying to convince us that this time he really really REALLY is telling us the true story4 stars for a terrifically well written book and getting some idea of what happened during the last ten years his career 2 stars for expecting us to believe him this time So I ll average it out and call it 3 stars

review ê The Hilliker Curse å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Har alltid varit förälskad i kvinnor och ibland även älskad av dem Han berättar också ohämmat om sin splittrade barndom struliga tonårstid nervösa sammanbrott och skrivande Det här är ett extraordinärt självporträtt skrivet på Ellroys unika sä. I have decided that I enjoy Ellroy s non fiction even than I love his fiction I have read his fiction for years and enjoyed it and certainly known that Ellroy peppers his fiction with real people who have made an impression on him through the years I have to say I love most everything about him he s a walking contradiction something I understand well right wing vulgar self aware cynical romantic too crazy to be sane and too sane to be crazy And a man who writes about the murder of women fairly often but truly loves females This book is probably one of my favorites as always Ellroy is brutally honest and truly poetic though not the traditional romantic his love and adoration of the women in his orbit is truly something to behold No matter how things end he manages to take away something beautiful and lasting from each relationship He honors each woman for the changes she has made in him and vice versa and miracle of miracles he sounds pretty happy by the end of the book not something I think of with Ellroy he s had many triumphs but his life seems so mired in sadness sometimes despite his lack of open sentimentality about it that I always wish him a happy ending I love that he manages to still love and hold sacred the things he loved about certain women in his life without the relationship continuing unlike so many people who casually love and then deny the effect that person has had on their life It s something I have always done but only once had given in return and that is why you are my best friend Bob3 So I know it takes strength of character and a true and deep affection and respect The prose is snappy and full of jive as always and obviously the book was a uick read despite it s depth great for fans of Ellroy you big freaks you
